  • Coffee paint is condensed, a little goes a long way.
  • Because we’re using one pigment/color, playing with saturation is very important.
  • At the same time, it’s important to let each layer dry.
  • Don’t use too much water, and make sure not to spill water on your painting – it will erase an image.
  • Remember that you can’t add white later – will start light and go darker.
  • Don’t drink the coffee ‘paint’!!! It is coffee, but reprocessed coffee.
  • Start with outlining drawing in pencil.
  • Apply layers from lightest to darkest, letting each layer dry.
